Pandemic Weeks 14/15

Sorry I missed a week there friends. Last week was a very rough mental health week and I just didn’t have the energy to do any writing at all. I have had very little time in the last 2 weeks that I wasn’t completely on edge with my anxiety and it came out in so many ways. Unable to sleep and waking not rested, mind never shutting off, stomach completely tight with butterflies, nauseous, zero appetite, verge of tears and unable to allow myself to do anything that would normally be pleasurable, so also going into feeling really low on top of it.

I’ve actually hit the point that I’ve reached out for help. I’ve been talking a whole long time about wanting to try therapy to help with my mental issues, but I never did any actions to put that in place. This last week I did. I sent out an email for a consultation with a psychotherapist and have that set up for early this week. Fingers are crossed super tight that they’re a good fit and I don’t have to hunt around for someone I can feel comfortable talking with.

I hate that I didn’t have any energy or motivation in the last 2 weeks as I got nothing done for any filming I had hoped to do for more tutorials and for the going live challenge I’m in. Hopefully I can get myself at least a pocket of motivation to get back on track this coming week.

I did however get a few things started around the house. I’ve really been wanting to work on tidying, cleaning and decluttering. I bought a new shower curtain liner and got it changed out, as well as the bath mat. I’ve had broken dressers in my closet and they were filled with items that I haven’t worn in at least 2 years if not longer – so I got them cleared out and pitched out the broken dressers. It’s opened up a bunch of storage area now available for me to get stuff out of sight. I’m making a goal to go through things and find at least 1 big garbage bag worth of stuff to leave the house each week – either by donations or trashing it. 

That’s about it from me this week. 

Until next time, xoxo
